"(...) in a time of times and a half of a time, when the dispersion hath been consummated, all these things shall become known." – Daniel 12:7 (Theodotion/English Translation)

Many Dispensationalist and Preterist scholars have sought to interpret the Apocalypse, but they have obscured rather than unveiled the mysterious secret of the book. This is primarily because they have misunderstood the "times" for when the divine truths were to be revealed, in accordance with the conditions set forth in Daniel 12:7: "...when the dispersion hath been consummated, all these things will become known." This time having been fulfilled, starting with the end of the Jewish Diaspora and the First Aliyah in the year 1882, the meaning and true interpretation of Revelation was simultaneously brought to light by Makrakis that very same year. Makrakis is considered to be the "Father of the Neo-Historicist method" of prophetic interpretation of the scriptures, as he was the first to reinterpret the Apocalypse through a newer Eastern Orthodox perspective on the history of Christianity. Thus, Makrakis breathes new life into the long forgotten Classical Historicist method for interpreting biblical prophecies, which viewed prophecies as a continuous fulfillment of events throughout history until the second coming. All of the important questions and answers have been brought forward for the first time by this largest ever Eastern Orthodox commentary on the Apocalypse. According to the interpretation advanced by Makrakis, many prophecies have been fulfilled with precision and accuracy, with a never-before-seen Christological emphasis on key events described through the history of the Church including the rise of every major heresy for the last 2000 years.

About the Author

Dr. Apostolos Makrakis (1831-1905) was a charasmatic Greek lay theologian, preacher, ethicist, philosopher and writer who was a leader of the "awakening movement" in post-revolutionary Greece, and arguably one of the most important religious personalities of the 19th century. He was an extremely prolific writer whose works were translated widely outside of Greece. He founded the School of the Logos in Athens in September 1876 and was the Professor of philosophy and the philosophical sciences at the school. Makrakis was a patriotic visionary whose vigorous religious movement became a popular phenomenon that shook the religious and national establishment of his time. While his Christian message found strong support among the masses, his ideas were not well received by the religious establishment and even today still remains a polarizing figure within Eastern Orthodoxy.
